Summary/Abstract: The aim of this paper is to describe the phenomenon of time perspective in philosophy and physics and its influence on the linguistics representation. One’s preference for certain consideration of the time is influenced by many factors. There are three ways to look at the world: the philosophical, the physical and the experiential. The author´s basic idea is that the interference among the scientific theories and the real experience of the world has created a conceptual vision of the time shared by all members of the European culture. Even though, this conceptual vision is not always equivalent to the linguistic one represented in different European languages, the differences are not significant. Theoretical instrument applied is the cultural linguistics with a special emphasis put on the cognitive grammar. For the verification of some universal properties and uses of analyzed forms appropriate Polish constructions were been used.
